Early last week, The Alchemist took to his YouTube channel to reveal that he and director Jason Goldwatch had joined forces to create a project titled CYCLES, which spawned from a microKORG found in a music store — this then led to an idea of creating music for “a film that doesn’t exist.” As another description later revealed, the legendary producer then proceeded to create these amazing “sounds” back in 2014, before he presumably brought the result to Goldwatch an unspecified amount of time later:

“Yo, what if this was a film? Damn, you know, this is fuckin’ weird … what if I just scored a film that doesn’t exist? Shoot this film, I made a score to a film, I just don’t have the film. If that makes any sense. And then Goldwatch moved to L.A. ‘You do whatever you want.’ And I know he just dove in the internet and was just like, ‘This is my record store.’ That shit blew my mind. I didn’t completely get it at first, I was just like tantalized by it, because it was so dope. His film made me listen to the music differently.”

Over the past weekend, the complete creation of CYCLES officially arrived for fans to take in, dissect, and enjoy. Accompanying by ever-changing, genre-less sounds that feel as if they were created in space, the short film in question begins with a man taking a death-defying jump into a pool before merging clips of underwater scenes with footage of the skies and beyond. There’s plenty of other moments — including audio recordings about religion and spirituality — that make the roughly 16-minute clip a truly trippy experience, and will certainly leave many with different kinds of interpretation after their first watch and listen.
